Tanagers begin fall tennis season at Yankton

Vermillion's girls tennis program is still alive, thanks to a spring and summer fund-raising effort that saved the sport from the budget-cutting chopping block.

The Tanagers began the fall season at Yankton's quadrangular meet Saturday, taking advantage of picture-perfect tennis weather.  Vermillion lost its duals to Rapid City Stevens and Watertown by 9-0 scores and to Yankton by an 8-1 count.

Vermillion's lone victory of the day came at No. 1 doubles against Yankton when Claire Jones and Valerie Robinson scored an 11-9 win.
